Solarflare Flareon Ultra SFN7042Q - Network Product Details
The Flareon Ultra SFN7042Q server I/O adapter provides hardware-assisted features that economically and efficiently distribute I/O processor workloads and optimize CPU utilization and bandwidth for 40Gb Ethernet applications. The SFN7042Q accelerates Ethernet-attached storage, real-time capture and monitoring, big data analytics as well as other cloud and Web 2.0 implementations, plus cloud applications such as data-intensive key value storage workloads, for example, NoSQL, memcached, and CouchBase Server.With a PCIe 3.0 host interface, a full set of stateless offloads, the addition of a hardware switch fabric and flow processing engines, plus new internal data-path micro-architecture, the SFN7042Q delivers industry-leading performance with low CPU utilization for dual-port 40GbE and quad-port 10GbE networking. The SFN7042Q server adapter features a unique, highly virtualized host interface that includes 2048 virtual NIC (vNIC) interfaces, 16 physical functions, and 240 virtual functions to enable unmatched multi-core and virtual machine (VM) scalability for next generation cloud computing and software defined networking.Plus, with AppFlex technology, all Flareon adapters enable users to deploy multiple network services with a single server adapter. As a result, on a server-by-server basis, customers can accelerate applications, closely monitor network performance and add a new layer of server security at the network edge.
